In the darkest hours of the morning, Donald Trump tweeted out a strange message about one of his longest friendships. The man POTUS was talking about has a tattoo of President Richard Nixon on his back. Today, we are learning what the president means when he says “unfair.”
Of course, the commander-in-chief was referring to one of his closest advisers, the self-described “Dirty Trickster,” Roger Stone. Trump tweeted about his friend’s many crimes worthy of seven to nine years in federal prison as a “miscarriage of Justice:”
‘This is a horrible and very unfair situation. The real crimes were on the other side, as nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!’
The federal prosecutors were fighting an uphill battle, because Trump’s Roy Cohnesque Attorney General (AG) William Barr replaced former federal prosecutor Timothy Shea as interim U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. As a result, the sentencing for Stone has been delayed — indefinitely.
The former Special Counsel Robert Muller III unearthed Stone’s many crimes during the investigation into Russia attacking the last presidential elections. The trickster was convicted of seven counts of obstructing justice, lying to Congress, and witness tampering in 2016 related to WikiLeaks.
